(Page 5 of 5 )
FlashCast is an end-to-end, client-server solution that is designed to effectively create, deliver, and use rich data services. Itís a new mobile technology product from Macromedia and will be available soon.
FlashCast includes the following:
The FlashCast client resides on mobile handsets, utilizing the Flash Lite runtime engine to display rich media to the users. The client software manages local storage, communicates with the FlashCast server for content updates, and ensures the overall security of the channel distribution system.
The FlashCast service is managed and delivered by a carrier-grade server hosted by the mobile operator. The server manages subscriber accounts, aggregates and delivers channel updates to subscribers, and generates billing transactions for fulfilment. FlashCast is able to deliver updates using SMS, HTTP, or UDP, taking advantage of the mobile operator's network infrastructure. By decoupling the communications between content feeds and consumer devices, mobile operators gain significant flexibility and management capabilities for the service.
FlashCast channels are created with Flash MX Professional 2004, the proven authoring tool used by over one million Flash developers worldwide to create rich, interactive content and applications.
